ICMS2019 USA - Sophion

Ion Channel Modulation Symposium 2019 - Boston, MA

Venue: Royal Sonesta Hotel
40 Edwin H Land Boulevard
Cambridge, MA 02142

October 30 – 31, 2019

For the past four years, Sophion has organized and hosted the Ion Channel Modulation Symposium at Clare College Cambridge in the United Kingdom. We are now pleased to announce that we are organizing a similar symposium in Boston, MA, United States this year, to be co-hosted by Sophion and Amgen.

The symposium will take place at the Royal Sonesta Hotel in Cambridge, MA on October 30-31, 2019.

The objective of the Ion Channel Modulation Symposium is to provide a valuable platform to bring together leading ion channel researchers from academia and drug discovery with the purpose of stimulating discussion, developing collaborations, and sharing the latest advances and cutting-edge research of this important class of receptors.

Invited speakers will address a spectrum of ion channel topics, such as new therapeutic targets, advances in the understanding of ion channel protein structures, advances in techniques for the study of ion channels and ‘traditional’ ion channel targets such as pain, inflammation, cardiovascular and neurological. The meeting aims to cover a broad range of ion channels and to present issues that are important in their modulation for the purpose of drug discovery and to look at innovative technologies and approaches to this research.

Two-day symposium – free admission

  • Presentations by international leaders in the ion channel field
  • Poster session
  • Informal networking
  • Drinks and dinner reception



We asked some of the delegates at this years’ ICMS in Cambridge, UK what they think about the symposium. See for yourself.

If you wish to present a poster at the meeting please send your abstract and title to Duncan Jarman before 21st September.
